Independent Arbitrator Advantage:
Andrew has the experience of complex and cross border-disputes which comes from 27 years as an arbitrator and disputes lawyer with a global law firm, but now as an independent arbitrator, he offers the following additional advantages: -
Costs - with miminal overheads, and without an 'accounts department' dictating policy, Andrew can be very flexible on fees and costs;
Conflicts - Andrew is not vulnerable to the same conflicts which can arise from being part of a large law firm or chambers;
Convenience - Andrew only takes on work which can comfortably be accommodated, and so avoids the diary clashes and delays which can understandably come from being a busy practitioner.
